How can a drone help me and my farm ?

Some of the examples where the speed and technology of a drone can positively impact taskings in agriculture:

  • Soil and field analysis
  • Planting
  • Irrigation
  • Geo-Tagging and monitoring
  • Health assessment

Using specialist field mapping software (Which BB Drone Services offer) instead of costly machinery and man power produces a higher flexibility and return of investment.

Crop/Field Health

Identifying field conditions allows farmers to take informed actions, save on irrigation, or enhance nitrogen-level management. Drones can acquire precise 3D volumetric data, which reveals hills and drainage points and save on the number of personnel required. Based on this data, farmers can plan their planting patterns and distribute crops according to the landscape’s specifics.


Crop monitoring provides flexibility and allows farmers to adjust their strategy during a season and even within a month. Crop monitoring also allows farmers to reduce field maintenance costs and focus only on the most critical areas, thus saving their resources.

Health Assessment

We offer health analysis by gathering data from several sources. Thermal, Multispectral, and Infrared Sensors. This way, farmers can learn the sunlight absorption and transpiration rate of their crops. Further on, one could apply the NDVI mapping method to know the field’s health condition.

Precision Agriculture requires a lot of data and requires gathering data regularly. And that is where drone mapping software comes into its own. We will work with you for as long as you need us.

Imagery alone

Drones can gather a wide variety of data just by capturing the imagery of livestock, fields, and specific plants. Here’s a rough list of info you can acquire from images:

  • Plant count, height.
  • Plant stress monitoring.
  • Leaf area indexing.
  • The presence of disease, nutrients, weeds.
  • Relative biomass estimation.
  • Yield monitoring.
  • Animals movement.
  • Tree classification.
  • Drought assessment.
  • 3D field surveying (elevations, holes, suitable water drainage points).
